I've had my DX9 for sometime now and really bought it for my studio ( to fill an FM 'gap'. I really didn't find programming it that difficult and have managed to tweak some excellent rhodes / hammond type organ sounds from it and some cool chromatic percussion type sounds (wood blocks / xylophone etc) and obviously some FM weirdness. Yes, 20 memories is pathetic! I've modded mine so that the display is backlit too. I really like this synth, although its limited, and it weighs a ton!!!

Gives more a more raucous and alive sound than the later 4-operator gear, the 20 memories are pathetic (half that of a 1978 Prophet 5) and the lack of aftertouch may be inline with the 4-op brigade but a loss nontheless. Tape saving is totally trouble free and the sounds are easy to edit. If there was one DX that needed a cartridge slot it`s the DX9 and it ain`t got one. Very cheap and well made and lacks the wooliness of the DX21/27/100/FB01 But for a little more you could have a DX7.

Like original DX7 MINUS: 2 of the operators and cart saving (uses audio tape)

No sys-ex, MIDI send on channel 1 only. 16-note poliphony. The best sounds

are made by looking at a DX7 and subtracting 2 ops at random till you find the

two thataffect thesound the least and copyit to the DX9. Decent brass and

usable organ. Piano/strings are non-usable(can't duplicate with 4 ops.) Don't pay over $100. Positive note: I played 2 yrs in a band with it, the guitarists thought it

was great...
